She also virtually interacted with students from across the country and encouraged them to contribute to nation-building, as India commemorates 75th year of Independence.
Dr Pawar said, “Following the launch of Phase I, I am happy to note that weeklong activities like painting, extempore debate and mask making about awareness generation of HIV/AIDS, TB and Blood Donation were organised in 25 schools and 25 colleges of each State.”
Dr Pawar congratulated National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) for the successful launch of the ‘Phase 1 of Awareness Campaigns on HIV, TB and Promotion of Blood Donation’ on 12th August, on the occasion of International Youth Day.
She also appreciated the NACO’s work in reaching out to youth throughout the country during the COVID-19 pandemic. On the occasion, she also released an e-booklet developed by NACO to showcase the variety of awareness activities conducted under Phase-1. The booklet will work as a guide to connecting more students from across the country to participate in activities ahead.
